Friday, 18th June 2021 at 10:00am - 11:00am

Delivered in partnership with Nottinghamshire County Council this is one of a series of events for those businesses who want to improve and expand business development opportunities and to make themselves supply chain fit. The sessions will provide an understanding of what potential opportunities are available and how to ensure that your business can comply with the demands of the procurement process either as a direct supplier or in the supply chain.

This event is open to all businesses looking for business development opportunities, available as part of the HS2 supply chain. It will provide practical information on what is required of businesses to access the wide-ranging procurement opportunities that HS2 will bring to the East Midlands.

This session will also be of interest to the education sector and those supporting people back into employment.


Delivered by Mark Warrilow, Skills Stakeholder Manager – Phase 2 (Skills, Employment & Education), HS2 Ltd, this session will cover the HS2 commitment to delivering a co-ordinated programme of skills, employment and education activities. The HS2 Skills, Employment and Education (SEE) Strategy sets out how the project is creating sustainable SEE opportunities in HS2 Ltd’s supply chain through the use of procurement levers.

  • We will hear about HS2 Ltd's approach to procurement, including detail of what this means for the supply chain, in relation to the SEE outputs covering:
  • employing apprentices;
